Humana associates

For three consecutive Wednesdays, more than 600 Humana associates from across the country will take time off from training conferences to build wagons and stuffed animals that will be donated to three Dallas-area children’s charities.

The activities began April 18 when members of Humana’s Midwest region sales team built and donated the toys to the Salesmanship Club Youth and Family Centers, a nonprofit organization that has worked to improve the lives of at-risk and troubled kids and families in the Dallas area since 1920.

The Dallas-area charities that will benefit from builds at the following two conferences include:

  • Wednesday, April 25 – Vogel Alcove, a nonprofit providing free, quality child development services for Dallas’ youngest victims of poverty – homeless children 6 weeks to 5 years old.
  • Wednesday, May 2 – Child Abuse Prevention Center, whose mission is to build healthy families and a strong Dallas community by preventing child abuse and neglect.

Along with books brought to the conference by the sales associates, more than 120 wagons and 360 stuffed animals will be donated to children at these three nonprofits combined.

The training seminars in Dallas mark the second year Humana associates have combined a training seminar with a donation event to nonprofits. Last year, Humana associates donated 108 bikes and 432 bears built at “Making Magic” training sessions in Chicago, Orlando and Austin.
